three days ago i went into new york city with my sister & my mother to meet up with my great aunt who lives in queens. our plans were to go to the international photography museum, lunch, & shop! the museum was incredible. all fashion photos from the 40s-00s from audrey hepburn to jean shrimpton to penelope tree to kate moss. all of the photos were taken in paris too (even better!) it was a very well-done museum & i was so excited that i saw it. i had so much fun. it was raining on & off which sucked but that didn't stop me from having a good time. after lunch we went to h&m. i was a bit disappointed with the selection! but i ended up buying a black high-waisted zipper skirt for $40 & an awesome light light blue zipper cropped jacket for $40 which i immediately started wearing the following day. i was wiped out when we got home at only 6:00...

inside my purse?
my shitty cell phone, sunglasses, camel cigarettes, & a wallet.
wonderful times square.
light green denim jacket, mom's. black bow dress, target. black belt. eye pin, museum.
and while my sister & i were in h&m we got a text from our friend stevie asking if we wanted to go into the city again tomorrow! of course we said yes... we got in around 2:00 & went to some shitty thrift shops then we took the L to williamsburg where i haven't been in years so i was happy to be there. we went to my favorite vintage shop, beacon's closet & i bought these incredible brown vintage knee-high boots for only $30, a cropped green striped top (it's cute i swear), and a jacket with a "tail" for only $15. i was SO excited with my purchases (still am). i also bought 3 books on our way back to the subway; in cold blood by truman capote (i'm starting this one first~ i'm currently reading), steppenwolf by herman hesse, and the trial by franz kafka which pretty much made my day. we went to central park to relax because we were walking all over the place for hours and our feet were killing us and we were being babies about it so we relaxed on rocks, reading, listening to music, eating hotdogs, drinking gatorade frost (speaking of gatorade frost i still have some leftover & i'm going to have some right now!), smoking cigarettes (well, just i), and being barefoot in the grass. it was perfect. i need to come to central park more often. it was so relaxing, so beautiful. after central park we went to forever21 as our last stop. i bought a b&w polka dot bustier party dress & cute bra. my sister bought some cute things too. on the train ride home, of course, we realized we were missing a bag~ the forever21 bag. $70 worth down the toilet. my sister was so upset since she was the one who left it. i feel so awful. hopefully a good person found it & brought it to the lost & found!!! we got home at 10:30 and i was completely wiped out!!!!! i took the best shower, got into my bed with blankets all around, & started reading in cold blood immediately. and that was my past two days for you. ♥
me & steve~ i look awful.
my little sister (and only sister), sydney!
(beacon's closet bags, in cold blood, a pair of my new boots, gatorade frost, & black point flats)
after walking around & sweating for 8 hours my hair can get pretty damn gross.
wonderful central park.
and of course i have to mention; michael jackson & farrah fawcet dying in the same day?!?!?! ridiculous. my highschool principal also died the same day (incredibly sad). he was the one to give me my first saturday detention & to never suspend me. rest in peace sicola. we'll miss you!!! and farrah, and yeah yeah... michael jackson too.
